Augustana Softball Camps

Facilities and Directions

Bowden Field
The Viking softball team calls Bowden Field home.

Located west of the Elmen Center and Ronken Field, Bowden Field, which opened in the Spring of 1992, is one of the top softball fields in the Northern Sun Intercollegiate Conference.

It has served as the host for several NCAA Division II Softball Regional Tournaments.

Bill Hall Baseball & Softball Complex
The Bill Hall Football Complex at 37th Street and Lake Avenue underwent extensive renovation in 2007 and is now the Bill Hall Baseball & Softball Complex. The $40,000 project included gutting the interior and installing the Jerstad/Kessinger Batting Cages, areas for pitching and fielding, and a clubhouse for players. The facility was dedicated April 5, 2008 with special tributes to Ken Kessinger, head baseball coach for 20 years, and Sandy Jerstad, who won over 1,000 games as the head softball coach. She also led the Vikings to the 1991 national title and a runner-up finish in 1993.

Augustana College is located in the south central part of the city of Sioux Falls, South Dakota, approximately 10 miles west of the Minnesota border.
